Annual Poodle Parade

Poodle Day is an annual event in Carmel that unites poodle owners and lovers — and their furry companions — for a fun-filled day. In addition to being one of California’s premier vacation destinations, Carmel consistently ranks as one of Dog Fancy’s top ten most dog-friendly cities in America. 

Proceeds from Poodle Day benefit NorCal Poodle Rescue, which has been a haven for poodles and poodle mixes in need in Northern California and Southern Oregon for 30 years. NorCal’s philosophy is to help poodles while also enriching the lives of the people who adopt them.

Poodle Day kicks off with a parade for poodles, poodle mixes, and their human companions followed by other activities at The Crossroads. Afternoon events include off-leash beach play — organized by the Poodle Day Team — a scenic stroll, a hike, or other dog-friendly activities around Carmel. Later that evening, cocktail parties allow the dogs to lounge in style as their human companions gather for drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and conversation.

Everyone is welcome to come and watch the fun. If you would like to participate in the parade or other Poodle Day activities, click the link below to learn more and register.

The parade begins at 9:30 a.m.  After the parade there will be a special presentation and then Lisa Elliot will then present the winners for the 2017 Poodle Parade. 

Poodle Day registration is $37 per dog. These proceeds benefit Nor Cal Poodle Rescue. You can register for the parade by clicking here.

Poodle Day encourages participants to refer to its terms and conditions for parade rules, award categories and awards, registered participant drawing, and refund policy.
